Talandracas will be changing their line up for the Gold Cup for the British Open, swapping out the young 3 goaler Jack Hyde for Hugo Lewis, the King Power Foxes ringer of the last 2 years.
Hugo has experience in the high goal having been the Pieres brothers’ go to player. In 2015 he was part of the winning team for the Queen’s Cup and the Gold Cup and last year swapped in for the gold Cup when they changed patrons. This year he will line up once with another 2 of South America’s greatest polo talents Guillermo “Sapo” Caset and David “Pelón” Stirling.
So far this year he has played in Dubai as part of the Wolves line up in the Julius Baer Gold Cup so he is not a new player to the Fantasy roster. Although his Fantasy performance in the International League was not exemplary, his performance in last year’s Gold Cup is a good indicator that he will be a good pick moving in to this tournament. 7 goals, 7 shots to goal, 68 throw ins and 40 backhands meant 88.5 points and 12 fouls dropped his overall to 76.5 points. It will be interesting to see how he fits in to this new line up.
Remember you have UNLIMITED transfers until the first match of the tournament on Tuesday.
